Day 355 – (AD 1,517) – 24.9 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled my Schwinn 170 and added another 24.9 miles. Totals are now at 32,400.6 miles; 52,143.8 kilometers.

I am now located at 24.05% in red dust on my way to my next destination.

Reading –

How to Stay Positive (When the Art World Gets You Down)” from Artwork Archive

“You have to let past failures go. Everyone who’s ever lived has experienced failure, especially the greats. Your work is just your work, it’s not all that you are—it does not encompass all that makes you an incredible and dynamic human being.”

And from The Conversation, Thusha Rajendran’s article, dated 14 February, 2018, titled "Stuck in the past: the UK needs to produce creative thinkers not exam-passing machines".

“Young people are still being taught how to become exam-passing machines, rather than develop their ingenuity. They specialise early and see art and science as binary educational and career choices. They see educational success as a consumer might view a must-have new product on the market. They appreciate the cost of something, but not necessarily its value. It’s not their fault, it’s ours, the generations that have come before them.”

The current Administration, nationally, as well as Ms. DeVos, should take note. Period.

Quilting –

Cranes Quilt update - The quilting is beginning to create our composition.

Just wondering.

How many persons, albeit quilters, have already begun designing a pseudo-similar quilt to Michelle Smith’s rendition of her dress on her Michelle Obama official portrait?

I do like the essence that the dress does appear, in my opinion, to join together and communicate the present with the past in the world of quilting.

Jim’s Gotta Eat –

I tried a twist on a recipe I found. Honey Oats Grits Bread.

Just out of the oven. 3rd loaf gone!
